Destination: Fit

"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!"
- 2 Corinthians 5:17

Beginning tomorrow I will be updating my workouts on a daily basis (I hope). Now you all can follow me on my fitness journey to "hot mama/super-hot milspouse" status. I will also be updating my meals. Please don't laugh at my pics, I'm a good cook :). Sometimes eating healthy doesn't look so good but to me it's not all about taste anymore. I eat to live.

This weekend I ran a total of 6 miles (15miles total for the week) and did the Body Flexor NTC workout. It was my first week back running since...September 2010. I just had a baby girl (Amira) on April 29. I think I'm in pretty good shape to be running again 5 weeks after giving birth. God has blessed me with the strength and energy to do so. Im not only on a physical journey, I'm also on a spiritual journey to get closer to God. The Pastor mentioned today in church that most times, you can be delivered by just by renewing your mind. I've always told myself that I could never run long distances, I wouldn't last. I hated cardio, I hated being tired. I was afraid of the treadmill. But since I've been in Christ, my old self went away, my mind has been renewed. I now tell my body what it's going to do. I tell it to run, and I run. It wants to stop and rest, I tell it no. Wonder how I'm working out this much after just having a baby. My God will tell you.
